September 24 Minutes


  1. Attendance
  2. Story – ‘The Long Long Letter’ – by Elizabeth Spurr, illustrated by David Catrow
  3. The Little Boy – brief discussion – re the teacher needing to make sure that a good product is created and sent home – don’t stifle children’s creativity
  4. Management scenarios – dealing with typical classroom problems – Can you put your finger on the possible problem? – Scenarios were worked on in groups then reported – Point – there are many causes and many possible reasons – learn as much about your students as possible – in your practicum make sure that you and your Associate discuss the backgrounds of the children – s/he knows them better than you! Sometimes you need to think ‘outside-the-box’ to find solutions.
  5. Readings – Make sure that you read Wolk – ‘Hearts and Minds’.

Summary of Wolk is found here:     

Majority of readings time was spent on Education For All Chapter 9 – no written summary but the PowerPoint shown highlights the major points of the article – found here:
